I found this an interesting read I self-published a memoir about two years ago. It was on my experiences during Desert Storm. I wanted the right the book right after the war and I was thinking of it even as early as a year. But it was a very different book then, and I was very angry (war has the effect of very strange, unfocused anger). And I was afraid of getting sued. With a lot of the vets, it 8767 s not about telling their story it 8767 s about revenge. I didn 8767 t want go down that path.
Joanna: Coming to people then, because this is I think one of the biggest issues of memoir, is many people write about a painful family experience. For example, you''ve mentioned your husband, Dave. But you also have some stuff about your family which I didn''t know. A strange family situation and your brother.
Roz: Dave would love me to do more. He keeps seeing all the other memoirs and say, 8775 You could do one like that. 8776 He suddenly thinks I might just hit a rich scene like Bill Bryson. I point out to him that it''s about 75 years'' work that went in that book. So, he''s going to have to do a lot of adventuring.

I''ve found a new groove that I just found rewarding. I like doing it. I probably won''t stop writing like this and maybe in a few years time it''ll be another. I don''t have specific plans but I can see that it could get a bit wearing that friends and family will say, 8775 Oh, we don''t want another adventure. 8776

I found this incredibly funny because I thought this just illustrated how you can take a fish out of the water and it is completely useless. So, all that though, it was all truth.
Roz: Well, what I did was I looked it up, I did a lot of research on Amazon. I looked up comparison titles, I figured out what their categories were. Tried to find outlets that were interested in covering that kind of book.
